Pros

  • People of all levels are approachable in the office and willing to help each other.
  • The flexible hours are popular and allow employees to have a good work/life balance.
  • Both starting pay and salary progression are seen as competitive in the industry.
  • Previous experience in coding is not a requirement at the company.

Cons

  • There’s considered to be a lack of diversity, though this is being addressed.
  • Some feel there is a lack of formal training.
  • While the pay is seen as being good, the pay structure could be more transparent.
  • A new office is being built, but the current one is getting run down.
